    If Liam Hayes intended his second album to be ambitious, inspiring and gripping then he succeeded superbly. Right from the opening chord 'Fed' is a powerful piece of work, the whole album merging together as almost a symphony of guitar strings, percussion, brass and Hayes' course, gentle vocals.

Right from the opening chord 'Fed' is a powerful piece of work, the whole album merging together as almost a symphony of guitar strings, percussion, brass and Hayes' course, gentle vocals. The music crescendos and falls, dragging your emotions with it, with lyrics that are simultaneously cryptic yet touching. A piece of originality and ingenuity that never lets up, Fed deserves far beyond the success it will surely get. Collapse

  1. Ingenuity and sincerity (two things in which Hayes excels) are priceless, and the sum of the parts is quite a masterpiece indeed.
  2. Plush's vision was obviously reaching beyond his abilities when making this album, and though that's commendable--better to try and fail than not try at all--sometimes you acheive less on the road to greatness.
  3. I believe that if you can get past the record’s obvious shortcomings, there is quite a bit of beauty to be found.
